It appears the Boundary school district has been able to operate as normal today in spite of the recent blast of winter weather
Buses did not run for the Kootenay Columbia school district this morning and won’t this afternoon either, but classes are running as scheduled.
Most areas received more than 20 cm overnight and we’re expected to see another 10 to 15 cm today. But it should ease off this evening and we might see a break in the weather tomorrow.
There are no warnings or advisories for the Paulson Pass.
The Kootenay Pass is closed for avalanche control and snow removal. It won’t reopen before 8 p.m.
Highway contractors Emcon has been working to keep the highways as clear as possible.
West Kootenay manager Ken Lawson says they were prepared for this winter blast.
If the snow has you feeling the winter blues you can shake the feeling at Rossland’s Red Mountain.
Red’s president Don Thompson says they got 20 cm of fresh powder dumped overnight.
He adds the road to Red has been clear and people have been taking in the hills all day.
